BALTIMORE - Who's having a birthday tomorrow? If your daughter is, maybe it is dinner and a sleepover for 20 friends. That will set you back a few hundred. If it is your son, maybe its laser tag for ten, cake, hotdogs for a couple hundred dollars. But what happens if you can't afford to give your child a birthday party?
Two women from Owings Mills have come up with the perfect gift: The Birthday Box.
Somebody is having a birthday at Sarah's Hope. Two ladies, Kim and Lori who first met at McDonogh are friends again over the birthday box.
Kim says, "Its amazing, Lori and I love giving back to the community and this is an effort that we can both be consistent with."
And it starts here in their basement. Everything you are looking at has been donated. It is in the box.
Lori says, "You get party supplies, cups, plates, candles and ever a personalized cake." Its all donated!
As a kids we were always thinking of the next birthday, who to invite, what's the theme going to be, where to have it. Some kids only what someone not to forget their day. This Birthday Box is about to make someone's day special.
Lori and Kim never see reaction from the children who receive the box. This is all kept confidential and anonymous. These ladies just want to know joy is being opened up for a child who didn't think a cardboard box would bring so much happiness.
